Optimizing brain health across the life course: WHO position paper

Brain health is an evolving concept that is attracting increasing attention not only from the health sector but also from wider society, stimulating rich debate – and for good reasons. The brain and central nervous system (CNS) are widely recognized as the command centre of the human body, controlling both conscious and unconscious body functions and thereby influencing every aspect of life. If our brains are challenged by disease or other factors, this poses significant risks not only to the individual’s overall health and well-being but also global development and productivity. Optimizing brain health, on the other hand, can lead to a wide array of benefits for the individual and society.
